Been to a Fun-eral lately?

In the current issue of Modern Reformation Craig Parton wrote a special piece entitled "Funerals from Hell: Where Have all the Graveyards Gone?". We don't usually include our departments in the on-line version of the magazine, but for this exceptional article we have made an exception. It is a brilliant piece reminding the Evangelical world of what a funeral should be. Not a celebration of life for there is nothing "fun" about even the death of a believer. These are times of stark reminders of the enemy death, but an enemy that Christ defeated on the cross.

Since Mr. Parton had recently been through a couple of fun-erals and also buried his mother, he gives five very helpful points of advice to steer clear of a "Gnostic Vaudeville Show" when planning a funeral (either yours or somebody else's). Please take the few moments to read this article, and you will be glad that you did.

"Funerals from Hell: Where Have all the Graveyards gone?"
By Craig A. Parton

Not to take away from Mr. Parton's article, but Rev. Mike Brown wrote a great piece about this subject on the Pilgrim People blog: The Enemy Death.
